We have wanted to go here since we moved to Sequim. We had heard good things. Tried to go at Christmas but the flu interrupted. The hours are a little quirky, open Thursday, Friday and Saturday for lunch 11:30-3:30 and dinner 4:30-8:30 and for special holidays. The menu last night was a three course meal with five different options. I... More

We stopped in here for lunch last week and found the service and food just excellent. My husband has to follow a gluten free diet, and Alder Wood offered the rare opportunity for GF fish and chips, calamari and more. The fish and chips were perfectly cooked, so light and crisp. They said they cook using a rice bran oil.... More

We stopped in for lunch after going to look at a local property we were looking to purchase upon the recommendation of a friend. We were NOT disappointed in the least- she had raved about it, and we can now see why! We shared the Bistro Burger and the Pear and Blue Salad, and had a little chocolate confection (can't... More

Don't judge a book by it's cover, as the saying goes. Inconspicuous, and an unassuming structure, but the food here is fantastic! We have eaten here numerous times and have never been disappointed. Oh, and the flourless chocolate cake is a celebration for the taste buds! One piece is enough for two people, very rich and satisfying.

We were quickly seated, our order taken right away, the meal was served in a timely manner, and coffee was plentiful. We will return whenever we are able.

We just celebrated the New Year's Eve at the Alder Wood Bistro. They phoned and let us know that a 6 o'clock opening had become available for their four course meal at $65 each. Our B&B innkeeper highly recommended this restaurant so we jumped at the opening. When we arrived we were shown to a very small formica topped table... More

We celebrated our 24th anniversary at the Alder Wood Bistro and were delighted! We had made reservations at another restaurant which wasn't for us, so we just walked in to Alder Wood Bistro without a reservation. Lucky for us they could seat us at a lovely booth. The food, service and ambiance were all wonderful There was a talented musician... More

This small restaurant is exceptional. The ingredients are top quality and the food is carefully prepared. I especially love their sandwiches with their sweet potato fries and delicious aioli. Pretty much everything on the menu is great. It is a little on the spendy side but due to the outstanding quality, I think it is worth it.
